Hello Everyone..hope you are having a great Wednesday...

Here it is a happy one for sure...Jaxon is coming home from the hospital..we are all so excited..guess you know where I will be all day...will probably end up brining Kaylen home with me and let them get used to the baby being home..they are going to be apprehensive I know after him being so sick.

Josh brought Miss Kaylen over for to me to keep yesterday..he brought her in and stood her up by the coffee table..she walks as fast as she can to me, says Nana, holds her arms up to me..I picked her up and she hugs me and gives me a kiss...ohhhh talk about feeling good...that made me feel so good I was walking on a know they love you or you hope they understand love, but when they show you without being asked, well all you nanas and grandmothers out there know exactly what I mean!!! I have been trying to teach her to blow a kiss..last night when they were leaving a blew her one and she did it right back without me telling her..sweet baby...

Angie and her family came Sat and spent the night, we had a great time..Angie had to see her new nephew..on Sunday we cooked a big dinner and mother and Cathy came over..we had a good time being together.  The boys play their first baseball game Thursday night..They said they would call me when they got home to tell me how it went and who won.

Today I have some new word art in the store..Wise Words

These famous quotes by van Gogh were taken from his writings done while he was in a mental institution..
His painting Starry Night is one of his most popular...
Charlie's Digiscraps has a new kit in her store at DSO based on the lyrics of the famous song "Starry Starry Night", which is about van Goghs painting and his mental illness.
WISE WORDS is a collection of quotes by van Gogh..
made into Word Art phrases to accompany her kit..

Hello Everyone..long time no blog LOL boy have there been so many reasons why..will try and give you a brief explanation...first I want to thank kim for the great job she did posting a blog for me..thanks so much GF..

kim told you about littlest angel..he was born with a strep infection he got from Kendra..her test before he was born gave a false negative..they have to leave him in the hospital for 14 sad for the kids..none of us could see him or hold him just look at him thru the window..finally Friday night a new nurse came on duty and let the kids hold him for the first time...they were so thrilled..

On Tuesday they called me and told me to come to the hospital..he was off the fluids (still has the IV in his little foot) and they let them take him to a room...I rushed up there and finally got to hold him for the first time...he is so big..and precious..he is so alert, just looked at me with those big eyes..we made pictures with the kids camera and I left it at the hospital...haven't got them on the computer yet..Kaylen seems to love Jaxon, she tries to pat him like she does the dog LOL..she looked like she was going to cry when I held him..but I got her too and she was happy..I felt so overwhelmed with both of them in my lap..I am so very blessed to have my GC and GGC..

I kept Kaylen from Tuesday night until Monday...boy she is a great baby but stays on the move all the time...she is walking some on her own, and around everything holding on..or crawling..I'm lucky the way my apt is arranged to be able to close all the doors and keep her in the living room and kitchen and hall..but I would think I will blog when she takes a nap, usually when she took a nap I was so tired I had to take one too...LOL thus no blogs..

Jaxon is better and will get to come home on Wednesday, we all can't wait..I imagine the kids will have their hands full with 2 babies in diapers..but of course Kendra's mom and I will help them out..I know they will be nervous having him at home after he has been so sick..I would be!

Kaylen spent most of the day with me yesterday while Josh went to the Dentist and Kendra to the hospital..he was in so much pain when he got home, and Kendra felt bad, I told them to leave Kaylen with me for the night..shes been so sweet..she's still asleep and maybe she will stay that way until I finish this blog LOL

I got an email from one of my CT this week, purepixels, she is giving up all her CT work, her husband is coming home from Iraq...thank God safe and sound...and she needs to be free to spent time with him and her little girl as they get used to being a family together again..I can sure understand that..I hate to lose you my friend but so happy for you.

I might have been slacking but my CT sue wasn't I have tons of eye candy to show you...

First I want to show you this beautiful layout my friend Vanessa sent me...


Beautiful layout and a beautiful it..thanks GF..keep em coming...

OLD NANA WORN OUT....need hep !!!

Hello Everyone...good Monday Morning.

I've been missing in action for a few days but man on man have they been happy days.  I went to see the kids on Wednesday night, (yes, I stopped playing Astro Pop, as I could not move my hand anymore..NOT really but I was sure tired when I stopped) Kendra looks like she is about to pop and she wasnt feeling good, so I offered to keep Kaylen for a few days....I called Chase to see if he could come stay a few days to help me with her..because of my health, I didn't want to be alone with her.

I had her until Sunday night and oh what fun we had..she is learning to walk and is all over where she can find things to hold on too..the rest of the time she was crawling everywhere..she is such a good baby, she wanted me to hold her a lot of the time and she snuggled up to me in the chair and just sat there watching TV and jabbering..she loved to watch Dora the Explorer, Sponge Bob, and anything with music and dancing.

I tried sneaking out of the room and leaving her with Uncle Chase but when she saw I was she came down the hall 90 to nothing jabbering all the way with a few understandable NANAS in the wash...that was a disaster, too many things to get into in here..I was going to work on the computer when she was asleep but I usually ended up talking a nap when she did..LOL

She completely and totally won over her Uncle Chase...oh yes,  all she had to do was say his name, and she did, over and she has him right where she wants him...around her little finger..ROFL..I told him wait till she is older.

The baby is now 3 days anytime now we are going to be on our way to the hospital...I feel so honored Kendra and Josh want her mother and I in the delivery room..I was there when all my grandsons were born, but Lori had 3 C sections and thats not exactly the same, Gage was born naturally and I was there...if you never experienced it, you just can't imagine the feeling when you see the baby the first takes your breath away.  It makes me feel so blessed to have been present at all my grandsons births and now my great grandson..

Lots going on to tell you know we are into a new month and new Challenges at DSO..I'm doing the Altered Photo Challenge and this is what you get for participating.

You should check out all the challenges in the DSO Forum, the gifts are just beautiful!  Charlene, one of our new designers is doing a new Challenge this month, called Desktop Challenge and this is her posting gift if you participate.

I tried all night Sunday night trying to do the mask but this ignorant dummy never got it right..if anyone has any easy peasy way to do them can you let me know!!!!

I am Designer of the Month at DSO and I have a Free set of word art for you and also MY ENTIRE STORE will be on sale for the whole month...soOOOooo if you have been wanting something now is the time to do it!!!


This is free in my store
